From talking to silence: a confessional journey

Heddon, D. and Howells, A. (2011) From talking to silence: a confessional journey. PAJ: A Journal of Performance and Art, 33(1), pp. 1-12. (doi: 10.1162/PAJJ_a_00018)




This article provides an account of work created by Adrian Howells over the duration of his AHRC Creative Fellowship. Howells provides a creator's perspective; Heddon, a spectator's perspective. Both chart the shift from confessional performances anchored around speech, to the use of silence as a way to engage intimate connections between performer and audience.
